You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man, and fear your God: I am the Lord.

Vision:

Minister to a “shut-in”, lonely, frail or depressed elderly by visiting and/or reaching out to a senior that cannot attend church by picking him/her up or who need help at home. The help would be on a volunteer basis from members of the congregation. A one hour a week minimum and 1 year commitment would be ideal for volunteers who are interested.
